We are currently testing a new Auto-scale implementation in the Reason beta. This feature allows the user to select which VSTs should follow Windows scaling, and which should have auto-scaling set to Off. Since all VSTs behave differently with Windows scaling we decided it's better to have an option to toggle auto-scaling On/Off on a VST-individual basis. In the Reason 12.2.4 beta, it defaults with auto-scale set to Off for all installed VSTs.
That's a pretty good solution. Another DAW I use does it this way. The majority of the VSTs I use these days are HiDPI aware, and/or can scale their own interface based on user resizing. It's only a few older ones that show up tiny. For those I enabled the scaling option.

Just as long as it remembers which ones are scaled, and I don't have to turn it on each time.

Read more about the new auto-scale implementation in our beta section.

If you wish to participate in the beta, please sign up here: https://www.reasonstudios.com/beta-test/signup and I will let you in.

Note, you are required to have a registered Reason 12 license, or a Reason+ subscription to run the R12 beta. If you have an older license, it will open in Demo mode as well.

So it looks like this was addressed to an extent but I'm still having issues with some VSTs.

1. VST working correctly

2. VST is too small

3. Turning auto scale on, VST is too big and unusable.

4. And this is how it looks properly in Reason 11

Could you not just make it work the same as in R11?
Should I just buy a different monitor (that is not 4k) :oops:

Several VSTs are unusable now after the autoscale feature was introduced, for me. Whether I turn the feature on or off, certain VSTs just won't render correctly at all.

To illustrate, here are screenshots of Serato Sample with autoscale turned on, and then off.

AutoScale ON - GUI is blurry and not scaled to fit the window, only part of the GUI is visible.

AutoScale OFF - GUI is crisp and clear, but still not centered or fitting the window so it can't be used. plus now the window itself is smaller.

This same behavior is seen in other VSTs as well.

I don’t want to see the next ten years of development go in to tweaking rack zoom levels and funny windows. I vote for finishing the HD assets and moving on. I think the things that are currently HD look great.
100% I have yet R11 on my laptop and I will not upgrade it to 12. Too much Vram. It already struggles with R11 Vram.
I vote for lite optimization. I'm not against multiple zoom levels for different windows. Just worried the base process could suffer
from increased parallel resources usage.
